LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – A change in leadership is in store for the La Crosse County Republican Party.
Julian Bradley announced Saturday he'll step down from chair of the County GOP, a position he's held since 2012.
The move is to focus more on his role as the vice chair of the Third Congressional District Republican Party, Bradley said, especially since election season is coming up.
Current Vice Chair Bill Feehan, will take Bradley's place.
"We do have very similar goals and vision. That's why I was very excited when Bill stepped up to become vice chairman because I knew he'd really be able to carry out what we've started here," Bradley said.
Feehan previously held the chairman position in 2011, but he stepped down to run for the state senate. Bradley served as vice char.
"I've already began candidate recruitment. I've been working on that for the last few months," Feehan said. "I'd like to encourage anyone who's looking to run for local office or state office to get in contact with me because we intent to fill a whole slate of candidates in 2014."
Saturday also served as a meet and greet for the La Crosse GOP to energize the group for the upcoming election season.
The La Crosse County Democratic Party is chaired by Karri Kline.
